The Craig Charles Funk N Soul Club

You can’t beat a bit of funk and soul as the soundtrack for a classy night out. The Live Lounge at Canvas has many big names gracing the stage in 2016; and we are delighted to announce that tickets for a gig by one of the biggest and most respected soul DJs in the UK – Craig Charles – sold out in record time – so a second date had to be added.

We are currently securing an interview with the popular BBC 6 radio host but, in the meantime, here are a few nuggets of information to get you excited for tomorrow’s gig.

Craig Charles is an all-rounder – actor, comedian, music lover – and he has really come into his own as a purveyor of the finest funk and soul as part of his BBC radio show. Each Saturday, from 6pm to 9pm, he entertains the nation with a seamless blend of old and new classics, chosen with passion and exuberant experience. The show also features live sessions and interviews – it is literally a masterclass in funk and soul music, past, present and future.

He’s not just a radio DJ, after all. More than five years as a resident at Bloomsbury in London has helped him hone his set to be all dancefloor fillers from start to finish. So we can’t wait to see what he does at Canvas.

Charles remains firmly in the public eye with his much-loved portrayal of Lloyd in Coronation Street and his turn in the classic sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf, which is currently filming new episodes, to the delight of its many fans.

He has also released a CD ‘Funk & Soul Classics’ – buy it here and play it on loop to get excited for the gig:
